I hope the 62 toro is relaible because I wouldnt want to use the walk behind as a back up on 6.2 acres. $250 is a reasonable price if there are not a lot of obstacles.

How much for 6.2 acres

I charge 30-35 an acre for that type of stuff. But I have a 72 diesel that can do an easy 5-6 acres an hour.

How much were you getting paid per cut for the 6 acre account you just lost. Sounds like that price would be in the ball park for your potential new account
